The Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs face off on Tuesday in a windy city showdown at Guaranteed Rate Field. 

The Cubs come into this game with a 9-13 record overall but they are coming off a win in their last game. Marcus Stroman locked down the bats of the Brewers and that led to the 2-0 victory. In the three games against the Brewers, the Cubs only scored four runs total. The pitching staff has been an issue for the Cubs giving up 4.36 runs per game which is 22nd in the league. Seiya Suzuki has been the top player for the Cubs hitting four home runs and driving in 15 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the White Sox who sit with a 9-13 record overall but they are coming off a victory over the Los Angeles Angels. They had good pitching on Monday and they won 3-0. Overall this season the White Sox’s offense has been an issue, and it needs to pick up soon. Andrew Vaughn has been the top player for the White Sox hitting four home runs and driving in 12 RBIs.

On the mound for the White Sox will be Michael Kopech and he has gone 19 innings so far this season giving up four runs. 

Getting the start for the Cubs will be Drew Smyly who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 2.79. In his last start against the Braves, Smyly went 4.2 innings giving up five hits and two runs. 

The White Sox are 0-6 in their last six road games. The under is 4-0 in Smyly’s last four starts. The under is 6-1-1 in the Cubs last eight games during Game 1 of the series. The over is 5-1 in the Cubs last six interleague home games. 

I really don’t trust either of these teams but one thing is for sure, Smyly hasn’t gotten a ton of run support this season. Even with a 2.79 ERA overall, Smyly only has a 1-2 record. Kopech has given up only four runs total and the Cubs bats are going to be ice clod. Back the White Sox on the money line.
